recommended! Suggest to go there with a train

Thats a great place to spendtime with a family! A tip is to liave a car somewhere else and to come with Train. At weekend there is a traffic jam.

Definitely it seems bigger than it looked from outside. They have a good number of animals, even though some of the cages were empty. There's also a nice picnic area with lots of flowers.

Wilhelma zoo is one of the most pleasant place in Stuttgart. We love trees, flower and a nice gardening there. Parking or public transport is so convenient and it is not far from city while you may visit Benz and Porche museum nearby.

Some parts of the park seem half abandoned and the park while nice is surrounded by construction, highly trafficked roads and train tracks.

The Zoo is much more bigger than we expected. It is well maintained and with no funny smells like in other places that we visited. We grabed something ok to eat at the self service restaurant.

We loved Wilhelma and spent nearly all day here. There is a huge variety of animals from penguins to snow leopards and the botanical gardens are great too. We thought this was great value for money at only €16 pp.

My daughter loves animals, so we had to go to the zoo. Of course she loved it, there are a lot of large animals. But this zoo is a good example how it should not be. The compounds are mostly way too small, especially for the apes. They need to enlarge them. Also, the restaurant is nothing where you can... More
